OPEN SUBMISSION: The Sirens Call – Issue 35 ‘The Classics’ | #Horror #ClassicMonsters

Sirens Call Publications is pleased to announce its next open call…

The Classics

eZine_Submission_ImageFor the October issue of The Sirens Call eZine, we’re looking for horror stories, prose, and poetry celebrating classic monster stereotypes.

Whether it’s vampires, swamp men, werewolves, witches, evil trolls, or… whatever, we want your spin on what these creatures are up to. What we do NOT want is Fan Fiction! No tales of Dracula or Frankenstein’s Monster; let’s leave the copyrighted names alone.

The only trope we’re NOT allowing: Zombies – NO EXCEPTIONS! We’re saving that genre for our year end issue.

Send us pieces that are creepy, sullen, emotive, freaky, humorous, elegant, bizarre; or just flat out scary as hell.

The basic rules:

  • write the piece well
  • make sure it involves a classic monster but not a classic name (for example, don’t send us a story about Dracula-we’re not looking for Fan-Fic here)
  • the work must fit into the horror genre in some regard
  • NO ZOMBIE PIECES!
  • Don’t breach our set-in-stone taboos – NO pedophilia, NO bestiality, and NO descriptive rape scenarios

REPRINTS ARE WELCOME!

Submission Deadline: October 6, 2017

Short story word count: 1,000 – 2,500
Flash fiction word count: 300 – 1,000
Poem length: minimum 10 lines; maximum 50 lines (limit of five submitted per author)
Drabbles: 100 word prose (limit of five submitted per author)

Reprints are acceptable as long as you currently hold the copyright.

Full page/single book cover ads are available for $10USD per ad. Please contact Julianne@SirensCallPublications.com for ad information.

All story, flash, and poem submissions MUST be submitted to Submissions@SirensCallPublications.com for consideration.

For additional information, please refer to our website for full guidelines – www.SirensCallPublications.com
